DLTK's Educational Activities:  Fables
The Lion and the Mouse

aesop fables ideasA lion lay asleep in the forest, his great head resting on his paws.  A timid little mouse came upon him unexpectedly, and in her fright and haste to get away, ran across the lion's nose.  Woken from his nap, the lion laid his huge paw angrily on the tiny creature to kill her.

"Spare me!" begged the poor mouse. "Please let me go and some day I will surely repay you."

The lion was so amused at the idea of the little mouse being able to help the King of Beasts, that he lifted up his paw and let her go.

Some weeks later, the lion was caught in a net.  Thehunters, who desired to carry the lion alive to their King, tied him to atree while they went in search of a wagon to carry him.

Justthen the little mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the lion's sadplight, went up to him and soon gnawed awaythe ropes of the net, freeing the lion.

"You have helped me and now I have returned the favor.  Was I not right - even a mouse can help a lion!"said the little mouse.

Don't forget:  even the smallest friend is worthwhile!
